Shocking: John Mayer Hath Torn Katy Perry's Pez Dispenser Heart Asunder

Sometimes great love stories last for a lifetime, and the time after that, and generations of children to come know and cherish their romance-steeped heritage, and other times "Katy Perry and John Mayer don't seem to be doing whatever it was they were doing anymore," say tabloids. Which was fucking, obviously. A source says the split was amicable: "They'll end up as friends. They were honestly having fun. People made it out to be far more than it was." But another source says that Mayer played a crude round of Operation™ with Perry's feeling-bones: "She's really upset. She is making it seem like it wasn't serious with John, but she is hurt."

Yo, fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, John Mayer's gotta wear a Buena Vista Social Club hat that only looks good on the members of the Buena Vista Social Club, and, OH YES, act like a 100% undiluted asswipe before, during and after intercourse. Granted, the way it's been reported makes it a gendered "women like jerks" thing, which is dumb and to be expected—and of course Katy might have wanted something casual and is totally fine and this is the ol' tabloid spin—but the primary question remains: Why The Fuck Are People (Of Any Gender) Still Sleeping With A Noxious, Shitty, Famously Racist Person (Of Any Gender)? Cheese and crackers, Los Angeles, I implore you to institute a Lysistrata-style ban on John Mayer. [Us Weekly, People]

Evan Rachel Wood whipped up a hot batch of Twitter fury when she joked that Miley Cyrus was "leaning towards gay" with her new haircut. She later qualified her remark:

Ok. To be clear. I believe you should be able to joke and have a sense of humor about everything. And i hate explaining, but just to be clear, i dont judge people on how they look. Nor do i associate a hair style with sexuality. I myself am bisexual and have always 'joked' about miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation. So i 'joked' when she cut her hair that it supported my case. But, i am not so close minded or into stereotypes or labeling. It was a joke. I could care less what gender she was attracted to. But dont hate me for supporting her in whatever She chooses. Its all fine by me.

But don't worry because it's all chill:

Lance Armstrong will be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after having finally given up defending himself against doping allegations. In his statement, Armstrong says: "There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, enough is enough. For me, that time is now." Although he maintains that the charges are "an unconstitutional witch hunt," "one-sided and unfair," he's decided that they've taken too much of a toll on his family and cancer foundation. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has based their charges on "non-analytical evidence," and teammates reported witnessing Armstrong injecting substances like the blood booster EPO, a banned naturally-occuring hormone.

But even the ostensible witch hunters are saddened by the final lap of Tour de Lance, says UADA spokesman Travis Tygart: "It's a sad day for all of us who love sport and our athletic heroes. It's yet another heartbreaking example of how the win-at-all-costs culture, if left unchecked, will overtake fair, safe and honest competition." [CBS News, NY Times]
